Golf Country Club of Mougins, Cannes
Founded in 1923 by the likes of Aga Khan, Prince Pierre of Monaco and Baron Edouard de Rothschild, Golf Country Club of Mougins is a historical course nestled in the heart of the Valmasque forest.
Popular in the 20th century amongst English aristocracy holidaying in the French Riviera, the course has since undergone a complete renovation overseen by golf architects Peter Allis and Dave Thomas.
Between the years of 1984 to 1998 the course became world famous as venue for the prestigious Cannes Open.
Set in idyllic surroundings, the course is located in a protected environment that features lush greenery, secluding trees and the winding Bouillide River, which crosses at various points.
Featuring 18 holes with a par of 72, the course is made up of easier sections with long fairways as well as harder sections that include water hazards and obscured visibility.
In the clubhouse guests will find a shop selling pro golf equipment, as well as a small and cozy restaurant, perfect for relaxing in after a long day on the course.
